The Vault What's in an RPG? As games continue to evolve and change concepts, that's changed significantly. Some of them might merely incorporate "RPG elements", while others rely on providing a story-lite, but in depth combat-oriented adventure, and still more offer up classic JRPG style with a twist. Here are three games who all serve up RPG gameplay, of sorts, in vastly different styles and ways.

From a near-wordless space platforming adventure, to a shooter taking place inside an AI, and a point-and-click adventure about a girl who deals in unusual currency.

  • • Casual Gameplay Escape
  • • Crazy Doors of Rainbow Colors
  • • Magneto Syndrome
The Vault ESCAPE!... through games, that is. The "escape" genre is an odd one, one that doesn't even sound like it should even be any fun, but for years now designers have thought up new ways to trap you with fiendish puzzles, and the audience is loving every megabyte of it. This week's Vault peeks at three of our favourite escape games that approach the genre from slightly different angles.

The Vault Hey, JiG-fans. I have to admit that I don't really know where I am right now. I mean, when I woke up, I found myself locked in this weird room. Good thing I was able to get a Wi-Fi password by breaking that creepy clown statue in the corner, and so am able to bring you another wonderful round of classics from the JayIsGames Vault! This week, we've got a surprisingly deep retro-RPG, a dice game that'll keep your week rolling, and an absolute masterpiece of music play.

The Vault When you want serious casual gaming, you want something with chutzpah. You need to harness the power of anger and boulder tossing and hamburger grilling and car repair and taking out the garbage. You need something manly, and thus have we provided you with three ultra-manly games from our well-stocked archives. What's more manly than fishing? Explodey science? Robots? Nothing, we tell you. Nothing!

The Vault It's a three letter genre you either love or love to hate. The RPG is one of the oldest types of games around, and has grown considerably from its early days at the hands of Miyamoto or Garriott. This week's Vault serves up three different examples of the genre that serve to remind us that there a million ways to incorporate it, but there hasn't been a decent Final Fantasy since Terra and Kefka. Yes, I went there.

From a soul-searching sea monster to a bustling island, to stately women slugging it out for respect, these are all games that might be a little different, but are more than a little memorable and awesome.

The Vault Some times while gazing up at the celestial firmament, I realize that, out there in this big world of ours, there are thousands of unlucky 8 month-olds who have never experienced a JiG Casual Game Design Competition. It's a tragedy really. And while those poor tots might not be required to wait too much longer, we can takes some comfort in the 9 previous CGDC iterations each provide more than the daily requirement of epic that growing children need. This week, the JiG Vault features some personal favorites from past competions. Future entrants take note: you've got some tough acts to follow.
